Paris – Alcatel-Lucent recently announced that it has been selected by the OpenNet consortium, to be the System Integrator for its Operations and Business Support Systems (OSS and BSS) responsible for managing its nationwide all-fiber platform in the frame of Singapore’s Next Generation National Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN). Alcatel-Lucent will provide a turn-key solution to OpenNet, including software, hardware and professional services in support of OpenNet’s target NetCo operations and business models. Project will be completed in phases and full completion is targeted for July 2010.
The OpenNet consortium has been appointed by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) as the Network Company (NetCo) to design, build and operate the fiber infrastructure for Singapore’s Next Gen NBN.
Alcatel-Lucent‘s turnkey OSS and BSS solution will meet equivalence of Input (EOI) requirements and create open access to OpenNet. The Solution will enable OpenNet to meet its contractual obligations towards IDA and run the operation in an efficient and fully automated manner at each stage of the activity cycles from the support of the initial fiber rollout to the most important aspect, providing services and handling the interactions with the Operating Companies (OpCos) and other Qualifying Persons (QPs).
“Alcatel-Lucent’s expertise in managing complex, IT System Integration projects will be a key asset to ensure the success of this strategic venture,” said Mrs. Tan Kah-Rhu, CEO of OpenNet. “Their extensive experience across the world in providing integrated OSS and BSS solutions will also help us meet our aggressive rollout schedule.”
Sean Dolan, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s activities in Asia-Pacific, said, “OpenNet has chosen Alcatel-Lucent for its unique expertise combining IT, OSS/BSS, network integration, service delivery platforms (SDP) and multi-vendor application integration. Alcatel-Lucent is recognized as a technology leader, with a proven delivery track record and stable, effective and committed customer engagement team to support large and aggressive rollouts.”
Alcatel-Lucent’s solution is based on multivendor consulting and integration portfolio – which includes service delivery platforms (SDPs) based on a service oriented architecture (SOA) approach. The OSS/BSS solution comprises vital building blocks which enable the open access environment that is core to Singapore’s Next Gen NBN. Alcatel-Lucent’s next generation of business and operational support system solutions effectively expose these previously hidden building blocks in ways that enable players over the entire value chain of End User/RSP/OpCo/NetCo to multiply and proliferate leveraging the complete process automation.
